With each of Italy's 20 regions vaccinating on their own timetable, whether you can book a shot depends on where you live. Here's which categories are eligible across the country right now.

This article was updated on May 28th.

While Italy’s national vaccination plan sets priority groups that each region is supposed to stick to, regional health authorities have some freedom to set their own schedule according to their population and the doses available. 

That’s why over-40s can already get their shots in most parts of the country, but a few others are already onto people in their 30s or even younger. Meanwhile some regions have closed booking for over-80s, health workers and teachers who have already mostly had at least one dose.

Here’s a breakdown of who can currently book a jab in each region of Italy.

  1. I have arranged an appointment in Rome to have my eyes examined. Then they tell me I need a green card to travel on a train. Then it’s proving very difficult to obtain one. I want to be vaccinated. I want a green card. And would all this be easier in England, or is it just as convoluted there?

  2. Why haven’t Umbria gone far than this?
